Information technology infrastructures should be designed with cutting-edge
equipment that offers citizens consistent and dependable access to necessary and
pertinent information. The infrastructures should be held accountable and
regulated by a well-established legal system. Additionally, the infrastructures
should create a body politic that trusts its government, is aware of its nation's
laws, regulations, and policies, and is motivated to contribute and participate
positively in the national economy and political process.' In modern societies,
the most efficacious means in which a nation-state can create an information
infrastructure is via electronic technology ("e-technology"). Some nation-states
are currently better prepared than others to provide information to their citizens
via e-technologies, and some are more willing to provide a free exchange of
electronic information. An assessment of how well a nation can disseminate
freely accessible, valid, and reliable information, and how willing nations are to

models use various factors to measure a nation's e-readiness.4 This paper takes
